"This painting began with the idea for a series called "Above Them All." Originally I wanted to feature cars that were somehow unique, special or historically significant. As I sketched out concepts, I realized I could incorporate the play on words and have the viewpoint taken from above. In this case, directly above the driver. While painting, I discovered that the image worked as both a vertical, and with a quarter turn, as a horizontal as well. I thought, "Wow, that's really cool!""- MICHAEL IRVINE
About 50 years ago, achieving success in road racing, Chevrolet’s Corvette was beginning to assert itself as a serious, competitive sports car and its potential seemed limitless. The 1963 Corvette Grand Sport 002 is one of the most important, historic sports-racing cars of all time. The result of Corvette’s early development, the Grand Sport, was the combination of technical accomplishment, competitive performance and incredible design.
This is the first painting in Michael's series, "Above Them All." Not only do we have a unique, aerial view of the historic scene playing out below, but like the Corvette Grand Sport, the cars featured in this series are iconic automobiles that have had a definate historical impact on the automotive industry and the car collector hobby.
A unique feature of this captivating painting is that you can hang it either horizontally or vertically. Automotive art you can hang to fit your space! Order your Limited Edition Print, Artist Proof with Single or Double Remarque, or Gallery Edition Canvas as a Horizontal (H) or Vertical (V) and Michael will title and sign it “your way."
